About us

The history of Columbia Integração has intertwined with the development of IT in Brazil. In nearly 40 years, we have driven the "digital transformation" of our customers long before the term was so widely used.
Across the country we've been responsible for the infrastructure and technological growth of companies in the most varied segments. Companies that currently boast about the great evolution of their IT management thanks to a solid base of systems and storage.
We are proud of being Brazilian and pioneers in bringing technology's major brands in the world to Brazil, such as EMC, Storagetek and Netapp - we are, today, the largest and principal partner to the latter in Latin America.
Being a pioneer, however, does not mean being still. Columbia is always innovating and renovating itself, as it knows better than anyone that technology is evolving by the second. We are aware that everything starts with infrastructure, which is the basis for any innovation to happen and grow in a robust and structured way.

What we do

Our History

Here at Columbia we have a lot to tell.
Find out about our trajectory and discover why we are one of the most important integrators in Brazil.

1983

BROKER

IBM Mainframe equipment broker.

Initially as 'Columbia Storage', in the middle of the computer market reserve period, the company was founded in 1983. Our focus was then on the development and manufacture of equipment, in association with Noxxon Tecnologia. The initial objective of that partnership was to make systems integration feasible and the result was success greater than expected. At that time, more than one hundred mainframe systems received equipment (printers and tapes) using controllers. Due to the great commitment and boldness of the Columbia / Noxxon technical team, the viabilization of clients' businesses and technological development gained its initial milestone.

1989

Distributor

Exclusive distributor for Storagetek in Brazil

Anticipating the trend, reaching the end of the market reserve era in the early 90s, Columbia turned to data storage when it was responsible for the introduction of an important company in the storage market in Brazil: Storagetek.

Along with that partnership, others aroused such as: EMC, Legato (now part of EMC), Inrange (today part of Brocade) and Netapp.

1999

Storage Solutions Integrator

Storagetek, Inrange/CNT, HDS, NetApp e Legato

Columbia begins to focus its operation on integrating storage technologies, which involved disk, connectivity, tapes and backup software.

With this new positioning, Columbia differentiated itself from its competitors and now its customers had a single access point to deal with problems related to Storage.

2005

Integrator Storage and Server Solutions

Sun, NetApp, Brocade, EMC e VMWARE

Such continuous evolution led Columbia to develop in the area of open systems as well as to form partnerships with new suppliers to make the integration of technologies possible and, as a consequence, start offering differentiated solutions to customers.

In 2007, we can cite end-to-end virtualization solutions, from desktop to storage as an example.

2008
